Today, the Asia Monitor Resource Centre (AMRC), released a book describing the struggles of workers fighting for their basic rights in the electronics industry with a focus on the operations of Samsung Electronics and its Asian suppliers, including those in South Korea, Indonesia, India, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand and Taiwan. The book also discusses the overall situation of the electrical appliance and electronics industries in Japan where workers have been hit hard by factories relocations. This book is dedicated to all workers who have lost their lives in struggles for their rights, to workers who have suffered due to occupational diseases and industrial accidents, and to workers who have died due to cancer from working in electronic factories. The book also salutes the survivors and their families, who struggle every day for justice.
